We are a warm-welcoming community that provides solid connections with experienced and generous artists, curators, critics, and art dealers through diverse programs and projects. We create a unique environment so our participants can dive deep into their practices, find unique opportunities to show their creations, present meaningful projects, and build a sustainable living in the arts.

Artists, curators, critics, researchers, educators, and anyone in the cultural sector can enroll. Contact us to schedule an interview and find the perfect fit for you.

Organized in small groups and promoting an intimate-safe-environment, ILAP is our art projects incubator. It was created for artists, curators, critics, researchers, educators, and anyone in the cultural sector, aiming to be part of a community that pursues a distinct position in the international contemporary art field. It serves as a platform for those seeking to start or continue to develop their projects, engaging in critical discussions about today’s art world, and intending to expand their networks.

Yes. ILAP was created for creative people in different stages of their careers. Its modules are designed to support different goals in art practices.

Each participant is recommended to do at least four quarters (in different or same modules, if you want to repeat modules) to establish strong connections, take advantage of a whole year set of opportunities, and be able to present a well-rounded project.

Participants should present a complete project to the public to obtain a certificate, including a publication.

ILAP can be customized to fit your needs. So if you want to do the Foundation Module twice to develop a more substantial references and techniques repertoire, that’s fine. Or if you already have everything set up and want to start your journey with us on the Module Project Presentation, that’s fine too. Our orientation team is always available to help you work through the program to fit your research and art practice better.

But if you have no idea how it can work for you, don’t worry. We’ll address it during your entrance interview into the program and when you are changing module terms.
